#NextChapter: Pasig Finally with the Opening of the Tenth Clinic

The group was led by Ms. Krystal Tecson-Garalde, CEO of Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center, in a somber little ceremony to launch the company’s tenth clinic.

On November 7, the third floor Armal Plaza Building, C. Raymundo, Pasig, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony that was attended by the management team of DS, clinic staff, and a few brand ambassadors.

The COO of DS, Ms. Vivien Tecson-Cadivida, formally welcomed each guest. We are delighted to have you join us today, and we appreciate you being a part of our journey. “We are starting our Next Chapter today,” Tecson-Cadivida exclaimed with joy.

She also mentioned that although change can be unsettling at times, it’s a necessary aspect of life that we should always welcome.

Owner, campaign/project manager, and brand CMO Mr. Kenneth Tecson graced the occasion and spoke to everyone with sincerity.

“Self-love is at the heart of this latest chapter, and we genuinely believe that each person is unique in their own way. At Dear Self, we aim to give you the confidence to appreciate the amazing person that you are and to embrace your beauty from the inside out,” Mr. Tecson remarked.

Conversely, the event featured the faces of Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center. Showtime Amina, Boomboom Neri, and Showtime Grace were all glad to have joined the expanding Dear Self Family.

“Sobrang happy ko na part ako ng Dear Self, dahil I had another family to rely on. Sobrang tinutulungan nila ako dito, especially to build my personality, para mas maayos akongm akaharap sa mga tao. The best dito sa Dear Self, they know what they are doing, at seryoso sila sa ginagawa nila, thank you so much and more power!,” BoomBoom Neri of It’s Showtime said when asked about her message to the brand. In addition, everyone who attended the little party was welcome to partake in the festive dinner and get a personal look at the Dear Self Pasig services. Everyone was treated to a facial and drip party, along with the clinic’s newest addition—a massage chair from Gintell Philippines.

“With Dear Self’s newfound home, we promise to be true to our goal—making each one feel that we all deserve to be loved so we don’t need to feel that we are noone,” Ms. Tecson-Garalde ended the event.

Welcome to the Next Chapter

Dear Self Aesthetic and Wellness Center has proven once again that strong business goals, anchored with the management’s heart toward its people and clients despite all shortcomings and obstacles, can bring continuous success – a silver lining!

We will expect more clinics to open this last quarter of the year. The construction of the Dasmarinas Cavite branch is now in full swing while the Kapitolyo branch will be furnished soon.

“Looking forward to continuing our service, to deliver and to make the best- better, because we always need to elevate our standard, kahit tingin natin nasa best na tayo, we still need to find where to improve. Hangga’t andito ang Dear Self, we can always expect the best quality of service for everyone,” Mr. Christian Tecson, DS’ CFO said in his inspiring message.

Avon’s National Sales Convention in 2023 marks a strong fourth quarter

Avon representative awardees for National Sales Convention (NASCON) 2023.

The National Sales Convention (NASCON) 2023 was hosted at the Winford Manila and live streamed to all Avon locations in the nation by Avon, the top direct selling company in the nation. Nearly 4000 Avon Representatives and Sales Leaders joined in the celebration of development and new opportunities under the theme “I’ve Got The Power” during the event.

Gift With Power this Christmas

Every gift is given with affection. Powerful gifts from Avon. The occasion saw the debut of Avon’s 2023 holiday advertising campaign, Gift With Power. The company highlights precisely priced gifts with added power for a period of 12 weeks building up to Christmas. This Christmas, Avon becomes the go-to place for everyone looking for strong and useful gifts, from lipsticks that give a woman the confidence to own a room to scents that offer a woman the courage to speak up.

Sharing the “Boob Love

For over three decades, Avon has empowered women around the world to know the signs, know the risks, and to know how to take action against breast cancer.

To promote how early detection can save lives, Avon Asia Pacific Managing Director and Avon Philippines General Manager Razvan Diratian invited attendees to join Fun Run to Boob Love on October 21, 2023. The event combines a 3/5km run with a fun, community-driven space designed to spread the knowledge, courage, and power to make breast care an essential part of every woman’s self-care journey. Proceeds generated from the run will be donated to the Philippine Cancer Society.

Powerful product launches

More than 20% of each Avon product sold supports female entrepreneurs and helps create better futures for women.

Throughout the event, Avon shared a glimpse of new products across the brand’s fragrance and beauty offerings. Attendees got a firsthand look at Far Away Beyond The Moon which features the scent of Belle de Nuit – a flower that blooms in moonlight – and Imari Queen which sports a burst of juicy blackberries, royal rose accords and a warm anise musk essence.

The introduction of these new fragrances was complemented by a showcase of the brand’s new Hydramatic Lipstick – the world’s first matte lipstick with a hydrating hyaluronic core –  and a fashion show that featured Men’s Club ambassador Enchong Dee and showcased the brand’s latest collection of intimate apparel.  

Bringing out the power in women

In keeping with the promise of supporting women, Avon shared new enrichment programs such as a trip incentive program for Sales Leaders. For their instrumental contributions to the brand’s continued success as leaders in makeup, fragrances, lotion, and intimate apparel,  women leaders stand to win trips to exciting locations such as Taiwan, Korea, and Turkey.

“Our Representatives are the driving force behind our success at Avon,” said Diratian. “It also serves to reaffirm our promise to help empower women with the knowledge, skills, and support they need to enjoy the financial freedom that comes from taking charge of their own Avon businesses.”

Fulfilling our sustainability promise

In line with the company’s commitment to making a good social and environmental effect, Avon reported on its progress toward fulfilling its sustainability pledge to improve the world.

The Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny program, the international benchmark for cruelty-free goods, granted Avon accreditation this year. Avon Products Manufacturing Inc. has cut emissions by 14% in terms of output. More than 80% of the company’s packaging is now recyclable, reusable, and biodegradable, and some locations have started collecting empty bottles to use as building materials that are environmentally beneficial.

This is why I am extremely delighted to collaborate with Biologique Recherche, who share the same vision and approach in skincare as Luminisce.”

Together Luminisce and Biologique Recherche will introduce two new treatments:

VIP O2 Booster Treatment. For a more radiant skin, this treatment detoxifies and stimulates the epidermis, reoxygenating the skin tissue for dull Skin Instants© that are choked by urban pollution. The result is a complexion that is more luminous and bursting with radiance.

Soin Restructurant Et Lissant. For a better toned skin, the reconditioning treatment drains, smoothens, and tones the skin of one’s face necke, and decollete.

Luminisce and Biologique Recherche will also unveil a new line of skincare products formulated with natural and alternative ingredients. These products are designed to address specific skin concerns, such as aging, acne, and hyperpigmentation.

Here in the Philippines, Paula’s Choice has just introduced their newest Advanced Sun Protection Daily Moisturizer SPF 50. What’s even better is that there will be two exclusive sales this July, allowing you to glow all summer long with essential items and potent formulae!

All-around advanced sun protection

Using an innovative blend of five state-of-the-art filters, the Paula’s Choice Advanced Sun Protection Daily Moisturizer has SPF 50 for UVB protection and a grade of PA ++++ for UVA. The sunscreen provides a synthetic-only UV shield, creating a non-greasy, hydrating SPF for daily use that leaves zero white cast. The unique blend of 5 synthetic UVA & UVB filters has a large molecular size which means they stay on the skin’s surface rather than seeping into the pores.

This advanced sunscreen will benefit your skin by shielding it from damaging UVA and UVB rays, preventing premature signs of aging like wrinkles, discoloration, and loss of firmness, in addition to a supportive blend of antioxidants

A new SPF that makes skin glow like never before

The Advanced Sun Protection Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 keeps the skin hydrated, preventing dryness and flaking, which can be exacerbated by sun exposure.

The emollients in the ingredients also ensure that the skin’s uppermost layers are also

thoroughly moisturized, giving it a multi-dimensional silky-soft feel that encourages liberal application to prevent aging and damage caused by UV rays.

With its sheer finish, the Advanced Sun Protection Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 is perfect for reapplying throughout the day. It offers advanced protection in a unique, hydrating formula that doesn’t penetrate pores, making it ideal for acne-prone skin.

Protect your skin and get that glow because the Advanced Sun Protection Daily Moisturizer SPF 50 is available from 7 July on Paula’s Choice Philippines website for ₱2,650 (60ml).
